Pine County Guardian Angel Shelter

Our Pet List


**Guardian Angel will be having a garage sale/fundraiser every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 - 5 beginning on August 16th and running through September 30th. Some available items are a gas dryer, pallet jack, pet carriers, rabbit and poultry cages and feeders, plastic dog houses, color tv's, many cement lawn ornaments and bird baths, china sets, bed linens, knick knacks, holiday decorations, exercise equipment, adult and baby clothing and footwear, 2 cribs, baby swing, changing table, high chair and toys.

We are always primarily occupied with the care of the animals on-site. If you have questions about an adoptable pet or would like to schedule an appointment to see a pet please leave a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible. We are currently caring for 23 dogs that are not ready or able to go into permanent homes. These are dogs that have issues with their health, extreme fearfulness, or are very aggressive with people. In addition, we are transferring many intakes to other no-kill shelters so that they may be placed into foster homes.


Currently we are trying to raise funds to buy straw and dog food. We need empty ice cream buckets. Even though we don't have a lot of animals ready for adoption right now, we are still caring for many that aren't quite ready for new homes.

'THANK YOU' for considering a rescue animal from a Minnesota No-Kill shelter! There are thousands of dogs & puppies across Minnesota awaiting new 'forever homes' - we appreciate your support of the NO-Kill movement, & encourage you to visit other No-Kill facilities, as well as traditional humane societies here on Petfinder.

Please invest time in researching the kind of pet which would best fit into your household - our adoption agents are glad to assist in helping you assess & select a good match.

Thank you for your interest & your compassion. Good luck in your search for a new family member!

Who We Are

Pine County Guardian Angel Shelter is a licensed & inspected Minnesota Non-profit, No-Kill canine rescue facility (MN Board of Animal Health License #41013). Our mission is best summarized in the Shelter name: we recognize that every dog comes into this life to be a guardian angel for someone or some family - it's our purpose to help them find the correct home. All placements, therefore, are made with an underlying preference for what we perceive would be in the best interest of each dog.

Adopting a friend

All puppies have received (minimally) their first set of shots & been dewormed. Adopters must spay/neuter at 6 months of age, in accordance with our adoption contract, at adopters' expense. No deposit required for spay/neuter; proof must be returned to the Shelter after surgery has been done (mailed photocopy of veterinary receipt). No application fees taken.

ADOPTION DAYS: By appointment only. A phone interview is required before an adoption appointment can be scheduled.

INTAKES/SURRENDERS must be scheduled in advance.

EMERGENCY CALLS, including lost and found, are accepted 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you leave a message on the machine, please be succinct, & repeat your phone number twice, & clearly. If you called during open hours & do not receive a call back within 4 hours, we did not get the message - please call again. (Note: voltage surges due to the neighboring dairy farms frequently result in the erasure of our answering machine - PLEASE call again if you do Not receive a quick return call. If you have left a message after shelter hours, & it is Not an emergency, expect a call-back when next we open.)

We do not schedule intakes or adoptions on Christmas Day.
